I am so excited to be sharing this with you! So get, set and go….
- Trikonasana (Triangle pose)– One of the basic poses, this asana improves flexibility and helps to reduce fat from the midriff area. For beginners, a repetition of 5 rounds is recommended which can be later increased to 15-20 rounds.
- Suryanamaskar (Sun salutation)- It is a combination of 12 asanas which together provide numerous benefits such as flexibility, weight loss, relief from lower back pain and stiffness. To begin with one can do 5 rounds and if time permits this can be increased to as many as 108.
- Vajrasana (thunder bolt pose)– This one pose helps to solve all your tummy problems like slow metabolism, bloating, indigestion, etc. To begin with one can sit for a short period of 2 minutes and take it up to as much as half an hour, too.
- Shavasana/ corpse pose– To end your ten minute yoga routine, you must practice Shavasana which is a restorative asana and helps to relax the mind and body. Lying flat on your back, with your eyes closed, breathe through your nose and relax. I can almost see your smile as you rest before the humdrum of the day takes over:)
These four asanas will take only ten minutes of your day but believe me, you will feel refreshed and energised throughout your busy day. This is how the 10 minute routine adds up-
Trikonasana= 2 minutes
Suryanamaskar= 4-5 minutes
Vajrasana= 2 minutes
Shavasana= 2-1 minutes
So go on and start this routine early and reap the benefits of good health! Good health to you!
